Mera’s love for Touch to See books
March 10, 2016

The mum of one of our young library members got in touch with us recently to tell us all about her daughter’s love of Touch to See books.

Mera reading a tocuh to see book for blind children

“Thank you Living Paintings for our wonderful Touch to See books. Mera has recently started to read them and she really enjoys being able to recognise the letters in braille.”

The tactile pictures are also really good as they allow Mera to feel the image and to know what the book is talking about, the audio descriptions bring the books to life and Mera loves to listen to them. It’s helped her to learn to listen carefully and has been great practice and support for her reading.”

If you know a blind or partially child who might benefit from our free service, get in touch today to join our library. If you’re already a member and have your own story to tell, please get in touch with Victoria by emailing
